Know more about Maruti Gypsy


December 08, 2014: Maruti Suzuki has received its single largest order to manufacture 4,000 units of its sports utility vehicle Gypsy from the Indian Army. Though the details about the financial value is still in wraps but assuming the ex-showroom price of Rs 5.42-5.96 lac, the order should be in the vicinity of Rs 216 to 238 crores.Up unitil now, Maruti Suzuki has manufactured close to 1,40,000 Gypsys for India and 22 per cent of these have been exclusively produced for the armed forces. Out of 4000 units, the company has already dispacted 2100 units over the past two months while the rest of the order will made in the next four to five months.


Some countries have vehicles, which define the entire automobile segment in that country. Though the automobile market in a country has a large appetite to fit both domestic as well as international manufactures, some companies remain to enjoy an unending customer loyalty to their products. One such company is Maruti India, which is one of the largest automobile manufacturer in India. Regardless the model, in any segment the first choice of a customer remains to be a Maruti car. Be it the exceptionally efficient service centers spread throughout the country or the unending range of services offered by the manufacturer in the country, Maruti always struck the right chords with Indian customers. The best thing however remains its legacy, which helped the manufacturing giant in not just gaining ever increasing customers, but also an impressive experience, which comes handy when a new vehicle needs to be launched in the market. Being the manufacturer of the first people’s car, Maruti 800, the company never ceased to grow ever since. It forayed into the SUV market with Maruti Gypsy in 1985, when off road vehicle and SUV as a term were in a budding phase. A legend among off road enthusiasts, Maruti Gypsy continued to be extensively used by people not just in the regular localities, but also for hardcore purposes such as military and other off road capabilities, where the vehicle needs to pass through some of the toughest terrains in the nation. It is no secret that Maruti has been a preferred option for not just customers but the government officials too. Though the vehicle was initially offered in a soft top convertible design, it soon progressed to offer a hardtop , so that the off road capabilities stay intact irrespective of the environmental constraints. With its amazing build which maintains a robust appeal, the 1298cc engine offers a superior control over the vehicle and it even allows the user to witness more power. Since the vehicle runs on petrol, the performance and pick up are extremely impressive hardly leaving any room for design loop holes. With an interesting 210mm ground clearance, Maruti Gypsy provides challenging off road capabilities even in terrains as raw as hills. The diaphragm spring clutch in the Maruti Gypsy is designed with enough strength to withstand high rotational speeds.

The entire build of the Maruti Gypsy from the tyres to the framework are designed to withstand extreme temperatures. The load on the engine is also considerably less in Maruti Gypsy, which already has a strong thermal conductive nature where it heats up in extremely snowy conditions. Though high temperatures might not be a considerable issue, the low temperatures certainly end up being a tough call. The maximum output generated by Mahindra Gypsy is an apt 80bhp at 6000rpm. The various weather conditions this vehicle can handle makes it one of the most successful SUV in the nation which actually stuck to its traditional design.

Maruti Gypsy Exterior

The exteriors of Maruti Gypsy are specifically designed to match the off road capabilities of the vehicle. The fact that Maruti created a vehicle, which was used even by the military personnel is an indication at the design and engineering excellence attained by Maruti. The overall design is offered both with a soft top model as well as a hard top model. The soft top variant though offers a simple convertible design, the vehicle falls vulnerable in the odd temperature zones where the vehicle inevitably falls prey to the environmental issues. The hardtop variant however offers a bolted top, so that the passengers are more relaxed. The entire structure of the vehicle is an innovative effort in creating a sustainable off road vehicle. The front fascia defines authority of the vehicle which is really helpful in creating a powerful image in terms of the viewer. The Maruti Gypsy has a prominent front grille, which was a typical Maruti design that has lasted throughout the early years of its manufacturing. The headlamp cluster and the front grille fit in a long rectangle with the typical round headlamps in the edges almost along the breadth. The basic structure also depicts a straight design for the front fascia instead of curvy structure. The front bumper has a subtle statement with reflector lamps on the bumper, which adorn in the slightly framed bumper design. The front bumper also offers a stylish appeal to the vehicle and more or less helps the vehicle in avoiding most of the obstacles. The side profile of the vehicle is also a pleasure to watch as it demands power and a simple design statement. It never seems flamboyant and no excessive muscle is placed anywhere. The beautiful thing about that however is that the Maruti Gypsy does exactly what it is supposed to do, it performs. One of the most important thing that needs to be considered however is the price of the vehicle. Maruti did a really amazing job in maintaining a cost effective design despite not compromising with the performance. The side profile offers two reflectors at each end and the wheel arches of the vehicle are slightly prominent protruding out as an additional element rather than a part of the framework.

The entire design, in fact, seems a bunch of bits and pieces perfectly coupled together making the vehicle a real pleasure to modify or develop whenever required. The side profile also offers a simple black lining in the under part of the body to avoid any bushes or rocks effecting the doors or chassis. The rally versions however offer halogen lamps so that extreme off roading can be achieved. The drivers side has a rear view mirror and the spare wheel is equipped with a wheel cover. The front foot step assembly is provided for the Maruti Gypsy Hard top, while the soft top version comes with a foldable front windscreen so that the vehicle remains extremely windy while riding.

Exterior Measurement

The overall length of Maruti Gypsy measure around 4010mm. The measurements of the vehicle are apt and are created in a way that it would be an easy transition to the Indian automobile customers who are relatively new to the SUV segment, at least when it was launched. The width of the vehicle is kept at a decent 1540mm, which again reassures the perfect build and appeal. The overall height of the vehicle is a decent 1845mm. The wheelbase of the vehicle is big enough to fit most of the rocks and bushes, so that the SUV can maneuver through the roughest of paths. The Maruti Gypsy has an enormous 2375mm wheelbase. The front track of the vehicle is 1300mm, while the rear track is 1310mm.

The Maruti Gypsy features slightly traditional design as it is mostly devoid of any modern contemporary designing features. The SUV though, offers a great build with innovative interior system with respect to the time, when it was designed . The interiors offers quality spacing for eight passengers with two passengers sitting in the front while the remaining six sitting in opposite rows in the rear section of the SUV. The most impressive part of the vehicle however remains the spacing offered for the passengers in front row. The leg room in the front row is ample and since the seats can be adjusted further, the vehicle features a class defining space. The driver as well as co-driver seats are adjustable hence they can be altered according to the user specification. The air conditioner vents are placed both in the corner near the driver as well as of the co-driver. In order to offer decent safety for the passengers, the grip bar handles really come in handy for the uneven off road drives. The gear rod is reminiscent of the traditional Maruti manufacturing, which can be traced in the Maruti 800. The three spoke steering wheel gives a decent grip to the vehicle. The design offers a simple statement however. Minor safety features such as safety handles, seat belts are offered though the contemporary safety design features such as airbags are not provided which might be a problem for people who would like to travel at high speeds. Though at simple speeds, the relative safety of the vehicle is ensured. The interiors can however be customized to match user requirements in terms of personalization features such as seat covers, the car floor mats, steering wheel embellishments, etc.

Interior Comfort:

Interior comfort of the Maruti Gypsy is enough to match the off road facility of the vehicle. Though the SUV would not classify as the most luxurious vehicle, it sure does the work. The knee support in the front seats is sufficient to allow passengers to travel miles together easily. The information cluster is pretty old school with simple design and block structure. The vehicle stands out in the same section for working in a minimalistic design. Interiors also comes with fabric upholstery for the hardtop version, a vanity mirror on the co-drivers sun visor, a front package tray and a lockable glove compartment. The seats can be adjusted and reclined based on requirement and even the head restraints can be adjusted accordingly.

Interior Measurement:

The vehicle measures up accurately due to its 1540mm width, so that the interiors can be equipped with enough features. The fuel tank capacity of the Maruti Gypsy is an impressive 40 litres which, considering its mileage is sufficient to handle long adventurous rides.
